Overnight in Bad Schandau?

I want to visit Bad Schandau, preferably as a day trip from Dresden. I'd like to take the Kirnitzschtalbahn to the waterfall and also to take the boat trip on the Elbe through Saxon Switzerland.

I thought I could take the train to Bad Schandau and the boat back to Dresden. Is all this easy to do on a day trip, or should I make it an overnight trip?

Thanks in advance for any advice you can give.

I did it all in a day trip and for the boat trip you can take a short trip thru the best part around the famous Basteii - the Bad Schandau train station if i recall correctly is quite a walk from the old town center and narrow-gauge train -= check those train schedules as they may not run that often. check these sources for possible further details on Saxon Switzerland and that tiny train - www.ricksteves.com; www.seat61.com and www.budgeteuropetravel.com - lots of great stuff in all on German trains and maybe Saxon Switzerland.
